Supreme Court on Monday (October 12) allowed NEET exam to be conducted on October 14 for students who failed to appear for the exam due to COVID-19 infection or because of residing in containment zones. The results will be declared on October 16.
Speculations are rife that the National Testing Agency (NTA) would announce the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) Result 2020 and the final answer on Monday (October 12).
